Living Psalm 37 – Pentecost 17C
Living Psalms Book
Psalms in the form of words and art, reborn in the specific contexts of our world, privileging the voices of historically marginalized communities and those acting in solidarity with them.
Don’t worry about those who commit atrocities and great evil,
Don’t you dare be jealous of their ill-gotten gains.
Their reign will soon be over,
Their days are numbered.
Trust in God and Do the next right thing,
Dwell in your place and enjoy nature
Trust in God
Good things are coming
Be moral and upright,
Trust in God.
You’ll see good things come,
Your name will be known for good.
Trust in God
Wait for God
Don’t worry when evil doers go about their wicked schemes
Don’t get angry, don’t get enraged,
God will destroy evil doers,
Remember the meek will inherit the earth.
Living Psalm for Pentecost 17C – Psalm 37 was written by Bec Cranford.
